I'm Patrica and this is where I share all the happenings on Dogwood Lane. That's PATRICA just one i. I know it's different but that's how it is and most of my friends are used to it by now. I'm retired now but most recently I managed the local newspaper. These days I happily pursue my passions of quilting, gardening, cooking, reading and dreaming. I'm learning about photography, volunteering with the Flying Doctors and keeping up with our far flung and growing family.
Time to meet new people and find some new bloggers so I've joined the Grow Your Blog party hosted by Vicki at 2 Bags Full.
This is the perfect opportunity to get to know each other better and find some new friends.
I'm coming up on my second blog anniversary in February and I'm so glad I decided to jump into this whole blogging thing after thinking about it for at least three years before taking the plunge. I've learned a lot over the last couple of years about writing, photography and computers and I've gotten to 'know' so many nice people in cyber space. I've even met a couple of my blog readers in person and that's been the nicest thing of all.
I originally thought I would just be talking about quilting.
But then we got a puppy and named her River.
I just had to share the antics of my rooster Silent Bob and his ladies.
River grew up and I wanted to chronicle the trials and triumphs of our puppy raising.
Then there's our attempts at organic vegetable gardening, still a work in progress.
If you like to cook as much as I do you know how you love to trade recipes and show off your success and sometimes lament your failures. Yes, sometimes that recipe just does not turn out as expected.
Blogging has turned out to be so much more than a quilt journal, it's a journal of my life and I'm happy to share what I learn with you. At the top of my page you'll see tabs to click where you can find recipes, my quilts and even some tutorials. Please come back again and stop a while on Dogwood Lane. Be sure to leave a comment and if you have a blog leave your address so that I can visit you too.
Until next time,
